IAN Holloway admits his QPR side owe the Hoops faithful a performance against Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow (Monday) afternoon.
The R’s were a shadow of themselves in Friday’s 2-1 defeat to Bristol City at Ashton Gate - a performance Holloway described as ‘pathetic' and 'inexcusable.’
Play-off chasing Sheffield Wednesday are next up for Rangers in the Sky Bet Championship and Holloway told www.qpr.co.uk: “We need to be better than we were on Friday and give our fans something back.
“I’ve been really proud of my boys over the last few months, and I want to be proud of them again.
“Take it from me, we aren’t safe yet.
“I’ve told the players that and they know that.”
Holloway admits the R’s last four fixtures - all ending in defeat - have left him hugely frustrated and he is eyeing improved fortunes tomorrow.
“What’s disappointing is that we’ve gone from being the form side in the league to losing our last four games - and that’s not good enough,” he said.
“We need to learn from that and maximise every single second from every single game - which we didn’t do that on Friday.
“Friday was unlike us. We were poor at Derby, but we played well against Villa and Brighton.
“We’ve got a huge amount to fight for.
“Who’s to say we can’t get three points on Monday?
“They’re fighting towards the top for a play-off spot, but we owe it to our supporters to be a lot better than we were on Friday.
“The players know we need a performance after what happened at Bristol City.”
